. president. mr. president, let me just reiterate. i think senator barrasso here and senator lee and others. we tphraobg -- look forward to working over the course of the next few hours with our colleagues to try to come to some understanding of the amendments here. one of the things that we promised here -- and senator reid altered his approach to this in order to try to accommodate our colleagues -- is to make certain we're not closing people out and there is no effort to limit the debate. but i do think by virtue of the work done in the committee and otherwise, there's a limit to where we need to go to in terms of of amendments. so i'm perfectly happy together with senator lugar to work with our colleagues with respect to a reservation or an understanding or a declaration that they believe needs to be tweaked here. and we'll see what we can do with respect to the number of amendments we want to bring. let me just say to my colleagues that this treaty should not be controversial. senator robert dole, president george h.w. bush, former attorney general, republican attorney general richard
